  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 lb. brussel sprouts
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve the pan with the bacon fat. Allow bacon to cool, and then chop into small pieces.
  • Trim the stem of the Brussel sprouts and remove any discolored leaves. Then, cut them in half lengthwise through the stem.
  • Add Brussel sprouts and garlic to the heated pan with the bacon fat drippings.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, searing each side of the Brussel sprouts until lightly brown. Turn off heat and season with red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
  • Add the bacon to the pan and stir to combine.
  • Serve warm.
